As a parent it is not every day that your kids thank you. But the developers of The National’s Cider Mill Ridge would like to give your kids a reason. With the groundbreaking ceremony last week the pool will become a reality and be opening Memorial Day weekend.
The pool has everything a kid would want: a splash pad, beach entry, mushroom waterfall, a place for mom to sit and watch them perform water miracles and most importantly, all within walking distance or better yet hop in your golf cart and make the short five-minute drive. Golf carts are legal on the streets of Cider Mill Ridge.
And while the kids are thanking you, you have peace of mind knowing your house is in the highly sought-after Park Hill School District. Elementary-aged children will attend Graden Elementary School, a nationally recognized Blue Ribbon School, a “Leader in Me School” and recipient of the Missouri Gold Star School Award. After Graden Elementary, students attend Plaza 6th Grade Center, then Lakeview Middle School and finish their secondary education at Park Hill South High School.
Cider Mill Ridge is part of The National, a nationally recognized community located in Parkville. Its rolling terrain, breathtaking views, natural habitat and Tom Watson Signature Golf course are just a few reasons why The National stands apart from all other developments, the marketing team said.
The developer, FiveStar Lifestyles, and sales team, Better Homes & Gardens Real Estate Kansas City Homes, continue to build on the reputation of its builder group. The builder team consists of SAB Homes, Ashlar Homes, Pro Builders and Double Eagle Builders.
Homebuyers will find a wide variety of floor plans at Cider Mill Ridge that appeal to everyone from young families to empty-nesters. Styles include ranch, reverse ranch, 11/2-story and two-story designs featuring extensive interior features such as granite counters, hardwood floors, kitchen islands, walk-in pantries, custom cabinets, architectural arches and extensive wood trim.
Another benefit for new residents of Cider Mill Ridge is its proximity to the best golf in the Northland. You can become a member of The National Golf Club of Kansas City or its sister-course, The National II. Both offer challenging layouts, beautiful, well manicured fairways and challenging greens. As with all the amenities, you’re a short golf cart drive away. If golf is not your game, you can join as a social member and enjoy the pool, health club, tennis and many casual dining venues.
If The National amenities are not enough, you may walk or run alongside the Missouri River while visiting English Landing Park or become one with nature while walking or running in Parkville’s very own Nature Sanctuary, both within minutes of Cider Mill Ridge.
Another convenience within a five-minute drive of is Parkville Commons, a 250,000-square-foot retail center, whose shops offer basic necessities. Residents can buy their groceries at Price Chopper, pick up dry cleaning at Pride Cleaners, find their everyday needs at Walgreen’s and dine at Nick-n-Jake’s, Rusty Horse Tavern, Jimmy John’s, Sakae Sushi and Pizza Hut. It is also home to the metropolitan area’s most active and vibrant health and wellness center, the Platte County Community Center/YMCA.
Homeowners also enjoy quick and easy access to The Legends at Village West, Zona Rosa, downtown Kansas City, Kansas City International Airport and a number of other destinations within 15 minutes of Cider Mill Ridge.
Home prices in Cider Mill Ridge range from the upper $200,000s to the upper $300,000s, a range that is unprecedented for a resort-style community and quality-built homes. Cider Mill Ridge builders have won awards during every Parade of Homes in which they were entered.
Available home sites in Cider Mill Ridge include numerous walkout and daylight locations with views of the golf course, neighborhood park or valley and a short walk or golf cart drive to the community pool.
